Construction workers among most susceptible to opioid abuse

President Donald Trump declared the opioid epidemic a national public health emergency. The construction industry’s total prescription opioid spent is 5-10% higher than any other industry represented in the study. There is a financial implication to this – a construction company with 100 workers can expect to lose $40,839 each year in Oklahoma, $43,538 in Massachusetts and $38,140 in Texas — three of the states with the highest frequency of opioid abuse.
